Well I am finally going to show off some of my recently painted models.  I have been coming to this site for a while now and finally have some models that are worth posting (I finally purchased an airbrush this summer to paint my works.)

Here is my first: the Sandrock Ver. JET +ka (JET being my initials and I took the Ka color scheme.)















I decided to do the wash in a gold enamel, turned out better than I expected.

I consider myself a novice, but I am still very proud and glad my work has turned out quite well.  Constructive criticism welcome.

that's ok that thumbs didn't work - as long as you only post a couple of full size images, and the rest as links, it's all good.

Probably one of the best-looking Sandrock builds I've ever seen. Very clean, shiny, and just plain nice to look at.  :D

I agree with zero except for the seams. If you had cleaned those up better this would be an outstanding piece and the best SR I've seen. I do like the gold wash as it worked out very well.

Thanks a lot.

Ya the seams felt like they had disappeared with the cement (used cement this time because my last putty job didn't work very well, check out my heavyarms custom). After i painted, the seams were a bit noticeable, though not so much that I felt I needed to go back just yet (I may in the coming decade :lol:)

Nice, I always did prefer that colour scheme to its regular. There seems to be something odd about the knees, though - not really sure what, they just seem like they're missing something.
